Free high resolution photo of one ripe tomato among a pile of green ones. Every gardener knows that tomatoes won’t survive a hard freeze. So the best choice is to harvest them even if they are green. There are plenty of green tomato recipes out there, plus tomatoes will ripen nicely indoors. Indoor ripened tomatoes don’t usually have as nice of a flavor as tomatoes that ripen on the vine, especially if they are picked completely green, but they are great for using in sauces and soups.
